Jeff Gordon incurred a penalty during his final pit stop and was forced to restart the race at the end of the lead lap with 35 laps remaining. He made a valiant charge through the pack and finished ninth in the STP 500.
Gordon was leading when the final caution flag waved for debris on the frontstretch. He was being caught by Matt Kenseth at the time and would have had a fierce battle, but a top-five finish would have elevated him to Chase contention. As the points currently stand, he is in a three-way battle for 16th on the charts, but trails Danica Patrick by a tie-breaker. Mar 29 - 8:46 PM

Jeff Gordon posted the quickest 10-lap average in Saturday morning’s practice session. His top speed was 96.261 mph from laps 41 through 50. That speed was faster than all but 17 drivers’ fastest laps.

One of the factors that makes Gordon so good at Martinsville is his ability to pace himself. Gordon also had the third-fastest lap at 96.884 mph in this session, so he should have short run speed as well if the race becomes a shootout at the end.

Jeff Gordon gambled by staying out on the next-to-last restart and led the Auto Club 400 on old tires. When the race had two green-white-checkered attempts, he fell back through the field and barely managed to finish 10th.

That was enough to help him climb three spots in the points’ standings to 22nd. He is currently only eight points out of the top 16 heading to a track where he has dominated in the past. Gordon has eight victories at Martinsville during his career.

Jeff Gordon finally avoided bad luck at Phoenix in the CampingWorld.com 500 and finished ninth in the final rundown.

Gordon actually challenged for a top-five for most of the closing laps until he pitted for tires. He lined up 11th with 12 laps remaining and failed to get back to the front of the pack, but considering that he was banged about by accidents in his first three races this year, he should be quite pleased with the result.

Jeff Gordon’s final fulltime season as a NASCAR driver is not getting off to the start he hoped. He was involved in late-race accidents at Daytona and Atlanta which contributed to back-to-back results outside the top 30. At Vegas, he ran into the back of Jeb Burton when that driver slowed to miss a crashing Jimmie Johnson with less than 100 laps remaining.

For the third straight week Gordon had a top-10 capable car. He held on to finish 18th in the Kobalt 400 and is still seeking his first top-15 of the season. Despite his bad luck, he should continue to be highly regarded in fantasy games.

Bad luck has followed Jeff Gordon to Las Vegas. He ran into Danica Patrick in the final minutes of final practice for the Kobalt 400 and will be forced to roll out a backup. He had the 14th-fastest time in that session.

Gordon will have to give up his first-place start and drop all the way to the back. Place differential in the NASCAR.com Fantasy Live game is based on official qualification, however, and this is going to make him a questionable value there. He should be able to climb back into the top 10, but last week’s effort at Atlanta shows just how difficult that can be for the driver of the No. 24. Gordon started at the back in Georgia when he failed to record a qualification lap.

In his final start at Las Vegas as a fulltime driver, Jeff Gordon set a new track record with a speed of 194.679 mph. This is Gordon’s first pole at the track and the third time he has started on the front row.

Gordon now has two poles in three races this year after also taking the top spot at Daytona; he was involved in a late-race accident there. When Gordon started on the outside pole at Vegas in 2003 he was also swept into an accident and finished 37th, but a second-place start in 2010 preceded a third-place finish.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the afternoon test session at Atlanta. His top speed was 188.424 mph, which was posted early in his run. Gordon also posted the quickest 10-lap average in that session with a speed of 185.458 mph during his first 10 laps around the track.

The speeds were uniformly lower in the second session, but they were also tighter. Gordon beat Ryan Newman by only one-thousandth of a second in that session as NASCAR continues to search for parity among teams.

Jeff Gordon posted the fastest lap in Friday morning’s practice for the Daytona 500. His top speed was 193.079 mph.

Only 14 drivers practiced in this session. Yesterday only five drivers practiced, so it appears that teams are pacing themselves. This underscores the fact that at Daytona, a driver has what he has when rolling off the hauler.

Jeff Gordon got his final full season underway in the best possible fashion. He set the fastest time at 201.293 mph in the third round of group qualifying for the Daytona 500 and locks himself onto the pole for the Great American Race.

Setting fast time in this format was about timing. Gordon and the remainder of the field rolled off the grid with barely enough time to get one speed-lap in the books. It was a gamble that paid big dividends for Gordon and his teammate Jimmie Johnson.

With a speed of 196.764 mph, Jeff Gordon posted the fastest single lap in the second practice session for the Sprint Unlimited.

This was significantly off the pace set by Kurt Busch in the first session, but only 14 of the possible 25 cars practiced, which meant that the drafting packs were not nearly as large.
Feb 13 - 7:34 PM

Jeff Gordon has crashed and failed to finish in the last three Sprint Unlimiteds. His best result in those years was a 12th in 2014’s edition of the race.

This is all the more disappointing because he entered 2011 with a four-race, top-six streak and had two previous wins. If fantasy players start him for an Unlimited contest, they should be content with a top-10 finish.

Jeff Gordon, the celebrated stock car champion whose crossover appeal helped take NASCAR into the mainstream, will compete in his 23rd and final full-time Sprint Cup Series season in 2015.

He announced his decision this morning to the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team he has driven for since November 1992. Gordon said. "I thought long and hard about my future this past year and during the offseason, and I've decided 2015 will be the last time I compete for a championship. I won't use the ‘R-word' because I plan to stay extremely busy in the years ahead, and there's always the possibility I'll compete in selected events, although I currently have no plans to do that."-Hendrick Motorsports

Jeff Gordon dominated the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, but the team employed the wrong pit strategy at the end of the race and finished only 10th.

Gordon led the most laps with 161, earned NASCAR’s best Driver Rating at 138.2, and posted the best average running position of 2.052. The team decided to stay out on old tires when nearly everyone else pitted. Frequent cautions spoiled that plan and when Gordon eventually came in for tires he was mired deep in the pack.

Jeff Gordon posted a lap of 180.747 mph during the third and final session of qualification for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He won the 200th pole for Hendrick Motorsports and the 76th of his career.

Gordon knows that the only way he will garner any attention is to lead laps and challenge for the lead. He will not want to be ignored on Sunday, which will be motivation to dominate the Ford 400.
